I was very sorry to read today that Rose Robertson has died. Rose was the powerhouse behind Parents Enquiry, which, as the obituary says, was:
Britain’s first helpline to advise and support parents and their lesbian, gay and bisexual children, which she ran from her home in Catford, south-east London, for three decades.
I met Rose a number of times when I was working for a gay counselling organisation back in the 1970s, and I liked her very much. She was a warm, but no-nonsense sort of woman; a person whom you instinctively felt you could trust and depend upon. She did a lot of good work. Thank you, Rose.
